Why join a union, what has it done for me?

It has:

  • Developed maternity pay and rights to maternity and paternity leave.

  • Sickness absence support and pay significantly greater than other workers.

  • Actively promotes equal opportunities such as tackling discrimination. In-fact there is a section of the union devoted to this.

  • Limited working time to 48 hour week maximum.

  • A lunch break, before teachers had to work with pupils.

  • Work load campaign.

  • Right to PPA, before there was nothing.

  • Weekends can not be directed.

  • Burgundy book of rights, even many academies use through union bargaining.

  • Support in times of crisis.

  • Support with advice regarding personal issues.

  • Reduced and recommended insurance products.

  • Various discounts available, provided through the teacher magazine.

  • Free legal representation when you may need it for work related issues.

  • Professional development opportunities within the union and changes to network other colleagues.

  • Opportunities to share good practice and take action on issues that may mean a positive change to working conditions.

The list can go on and is possibly endless. You on your own may not be heard, you and your union will be. One group, one voice, huge impact on change.
